Freycinet experiences and attractions


Quamby near Launceston is one of Tasmania’s most prestigious and historically important properties. Built between 1828 and 1838, Quamby was for several years the home of a premier of Tasmania but now is a suitably grand luxury lodge. The picture-book grounds boast a tennis court, tree-lined laneway and an impeccably maintained golf course lined with trees more than 100 years old. The fairways have magnificent views to the Ben Lomond Ranges in the east and the Great Western Tiers to the south. The original manager’s office and home, circa 1850, is now the club house. The magnificent homestead has ten lovingly restored guest rooms within the homely ambience of a boutique guesthouse. Enjoy sumptuous meals prepared with fresh Tasmanian produce accompanied by local Tamar Valley wines and use the homestead as your base for touring Launceston and the north. Quamby Estate is 20 minutes from Launceston city and airport.
